I have been in Real Estate since 1985. I have summered in Newport all my life and have lived here full time since 1979. I work with sales and
rentals of all types. I partner with my Husband Sean McElroy plus my Assistant Justine McGowan. Having three of us working together gives consistency to representing our Clients. We are available 7 days a week.
I grew up in New York but decided to settle in Newport because of my love for the Ocean and the beauty of the city. Real Estate was a natural for me as I was a sociology major at University of Colorado and love working with people. I have great knowledge of Newport and surrounding areas. I have sold properties all over Aquidneck Island, Jamestown ,Tiverton, Bristol, and North Kingston. I have an ABR and love to work equally with Buyers and Sellers. I also am very active in rentals. I have been doing both rentals and sales through out my career. I am happy to help in amy way possible.

Ratings & Reviews

I have owned 2 rental properties in Newport, RI for 30 years. Edie Cushing has been my exclusive rental agent for these properties. She has, as well, sold my first property, gaining the highest price in a competitive market and she has assisted me in buying my next property, gaining very fair pricing for a highly sought after property. She assisted me in getting an excellent real estate attorney who assisted in all details of escrow and closing. Edie knows the newest real estate laws and is knowledgeable in all facets and paperwork details of the real estate market whether buying, selling or renting. I have no reservations in recommending her highly.

Bought a Single Family home in 2001 for approximately $250K in Middletown, RI.

My spouse and I were first time home buyers. We were new to New England. We were new " not local" to the Aquidneck Island community.

We had tried a few other agents in the New England area. She was the first one to be professional, honest, sincere, and helpful. Most importantly she listened to what we were looking for and she stayed within our budget!!!

We looked at 15 houses in 3 days time- we were on house hunting time. Due to Edie's knowledge and professionalism, she worked with us during the bidding war and we successfully made our first home purchase. Then we left town with our house in her hands.

Through out the months of us being cross country, Edie kept us up to date with everything! We were over 3,400 miles away but we were at ease. Upon arrival we were met in a professional and friendly manner. We did the walk through, she answered all questions, we signed the papers, and became house owners!

Sold a Single Family home in 2008 in Newport, RI.

I have used the services of Ms. Cushing in rentals and sales. Extremely knowledgeable of the area she serves. I would recommend Ms Cushing for all your realestate needs. I have used other agents at other realestate offices and have not been satisfied by their preformence. Ms. Cushing is the person I go to when I need to sell or rent. A true professional and proven winner!  More Less
